Into the Unknown The Descent

The Gloom Dagger is a main quest in Wayfinder.



Lord Halar wants you to refine the shard you've been using to enter the Gloom. Use the Echo Matrix to create a Gloom Dagger by combining it with the ember you recovered from the Codex Halls.


With a Codex Ember in your possession, Lord Halar believes it is time to refine the shard you've been using to enter Lost Zones in the Gloom. He will show you how to use the Echo Matrix and create a Gloom Dagger, by combining the focusing shard with the ember recovered from the Codex Halls.



Clear Into the Unknown.

Start Quest
Lord Halar

The Silver Codex studied ways to manipulate arcane energies. We can use the ember you recovered from Aurelian to create your Gloom Dagger, and to establish your own connection to the ruins.

You see, the shard you claimed in the Gloom is a rough and imperfect tool. You need to make it a true extension of yourself, a blade that can cut through reality.

Use the Echo Matrix to combine the Ember and the Shard. Visualize the shape of your dagger. You can draw on the threads of the Gloom and make your vision real. Try it!

Lord Halar

Excellent, yes! Let me inspect it and make sure your work is complete.

Perfectly done—woven from the pure elements of magic and drawn into reality. Now you have what you need to explore Lost Zones on your own. Let's review that procedure.

To reach a Lost Zone, you need three things: a Breach that serves as an entrance, a Gloom Dagger that can cut a path through the shadows, and a connection to the place consumed by the Gloom.

A connection can take the form of an object—such as the ember now bound to your dagger—or something more abstract, such as a memory or experience.

You now have a Gloom Dagger, and through the ember you have a connection to the Codex Halls. So, what is it you are missing, Wayfinder? Have you been listening?


… A Gloom Breach?

Lord Halar

Yes! Just so. You need to find the point at which this area collapsed. You must search the Highlands for a sheet of Gloom energy, a hole in the world.

Once you've found it, use your Dagger to carve a path. Explore what lies beyond and destroy the Anchor of that shadow; thereafter you will be able to reach Aurelian through the Gloom Gate here.
